They say cats choose their humans. This is exactly what happened to this guy who met a calico cat in an unexpected way.
The little stray came out from a cornfield, walked up to the man and the rest is history.
Reddit user NebulonsStyle found a little calico kitty hanging around in a cornfield.
He had seen a stray mother cat in the area, so he quickly knew this adorable kitten was probably one of her babies that had wandered off.
When the kitty saw the man, she wasn't afraid at all.
The calico cat walked up to him and started meowing for attention.
"Maybe we can be friends?"
Before he knew it, he was holding the little fluff ball in his arms, and the kitten was purring up a storm as if to say 'You are my human meow!'.
She was the only kitty in the field, and he couldn't leave her out there by herself.
The man took her to the vet that day and they couldn't find a microchip.
"We knew which stray its mother was so there wasn't really any chance of it belonging to anyone, but had it done anyways just to be sure," he said via reddit. "And then she became mine."
The kitty's all grown up now!
She is loving her indoor life.
"Sometimes you don't choose your family... they choose you!"
